   One Pan Broccoli-Bacon Mac'n'cheese submitted by Mom Johnson
Another kid-friendly recipe that we used while camping. The squash adds a nice golden color and another serving of veggies!

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, reserving about 2 tsp. drippings. Add the garlic to the drippings and sauté for about 30 seconds. Add the stock, milk and squash. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.

Add the pasta; cover and reduce heat to simmer for about 5 minutes. Stir in the broccoli; cover and cook for 3 more minutes or until pasta is done and sauce is thickened. Stir in the salt, pepper and 4 oz. of the cheese. Sprinkle the bacon and remaining cheese on top. Cover and let stand for about 1 minute before serving.
